      Leaving an update of my results.

      I replaced the downstream sensor with an NTK, as the OE Bosch only seemed to last 107,000 km's (less than 70k miles).

      I drove one of these last week at a used car dealer. It had issues (smoked, clutch engaged 1/2" off the floor, low power, bad wheel bearing sounds) and they wanted big money for it.

      Had that on mine, was more raggy looking through. Guy at the dealer claimed it was from shipping when new. Not sure I buy that but he had his 'detail guy' fix it up.
